Frock ‘N’ Roll……

Vintage fashion really does travel and so I must take every opportunity to journey through what comes my way!

Whether it be local or in a land far away I am interested in beautiful things and beautiful places which whisper tales of the past; fashion, imagery, photography, textiles, prints and all things sprinkled with sunshine shimmers….

 

This weeks post is all about “Frock ‘N’ Roll”, we at Gia London love styling our pretty dresses with a rock and roll edge…leather Jackets, studded boots, fringed bags and Gilets and lots of Jewellery in Silver and Gold. Influence by old rock and roll music, old rock and roll lovers, new rock and roll lovers and all things nostalgic….come follow our frock and roll journey….

This weeks post is all about “Dancing in the Summer Rain”.……just like Belinda Carlisle said in her song

Since the London Summer has been a little washed out we decided to re-joice and embrace the rain and still wear our frocks (teamed with gumboots for those rocking Summer Festivals)…..

just because its Raining outside doesnt mean we cant look pretty…..

I've had the time of my life

They call this Rain Ballet

Dance up a storm in the rain

 

Hold me close...Keep me warm

Rain by Moonlight

Kiss me....

Waiting, Wondering, Believing....

 

Raindrops keep fallin on my head

Feeling Free, Feeling Alive

Whispering our goodbyes, waiting for a train...

I remember the rain on our skin
And his kisses hotter than the Santa Ana winds
Whispering our goodbyes
Waiting for a train
I was dancing with my baby
In the summer rain
I remember laughing ’till we almost cried
There at the station that night
I remember looking in his eyes

Oh my love it’s you that I dream of
Oh my love since that day
Somewhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain
Doesn’t matter what I do now
Doesn’t matter what I say
Somwhere in my heart I’m always
Dancing with you in the summer rain
